About ADD International.

ADD is a participatory grant-maker for disability justice. Our vision is for a world in which ableism no longer exists, and disabled people can fully participate in society. Our mission is to strengthen disability justice activists and organisations through resourcing, and leadership skills.

We are transforming our organisation and getting back to our roots by sharing more power and resources directly with activists. Over the next ten years, we have a goal to provide £25 million long-term unrestricted grants directly to disability justice activists and movements. Crucially, we will also give disability justice activists greater decision-making power on who should receive funding and how funding should be spent.

Our new ‘Fundseeking’ Strategy outlines how we will raise the funding and cultivate the right partnerships to provide the flexible resources that disability justice movements need and that allow ADD to become the grant-maker we aspire to be. This is not a usual fundraising strategy. It decentres ADD’s own growth and instead focuses on using our position and proximity to wealth with intention to channel more resources to disability justice movements that are less able to access them. The first two years of this strategy have successfully raised £3 million in unrestricted funding from funders who share our vision.
